What is an Email Link?

An email link, often referred to as a mailto link, is a type of hyperlink that opens the default email software on the computer or mobile device with a pre-addressed email template.

This convenience eliminates the need for copying email addresses and opening an email client manually, thereby streamlining communication.

How Do Email Links Work?

Email links are powered by the mailto: protocol, which browsers recognize as a command to open the user’s email application.

When a user clicks on a mailto link, the browser fetches this protocol, triggering the email client to open a new message window.

This window can be pre-populated with a recipient’s email address, subject line, and even a body text depending on how the link is structured.
